This program supports the development of solutions for application of waste heat in large industrial systems. 

Activities supported

The applicant must be a consortium of at least 3 different unrelated legal entities in 3 different Horizon 2020 affiliated countries.  


The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of between EUR 3 and 4 million would allow this area to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude submission and selection of proposals requesting other amounts. Funding rate is 70% for profit seeking organizations and 100% for non-profits. 

Upcoming calls 

This program will have 1 more call on 2017 January 19 which has a budget of 8 million euros.
